Waiting For Next Year:
Wide receiver Tori Gurley was waived by the Cleveland Browns Tuesday evening to make room on the 53-man active roster for the soon-to-be-activated Josh Gordon.
Gurley, 25, made one catch in his two games with the Browns. He was added to the roster from the practice squad shortly before Week 1, in a somewhat surprising move that had Cleveland waive backup running back Dennis Johnson. A practice squad veteran and South Carolina product, the big Gurley saw his most significant action toward the end of the opening game against the Dolphins.
The Browns likely will hope to add Gurley back to the practice squad on Wednesday if he is not claimed by another NFL team. To make room for that likely move, the team also announced that it had waived practice squad receiver Arceto Clark, who had been added last Tuesday.
Thus, Gordon is expected to be added to the 53-man roster on Wednesday. He comes off a two-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. The suspension was announced back in June, when it also was initially reported that the second-year receiver out of Baylor could face a one-year suspension with another positive test.
Cleveland’s receiving corps has struggled with Gordon’s playmaking presence thus far. Greg Little has struggled holding onto the ball and outside of emerging starter Jordan Cameron, there aren’t any other significant passing threats. Travis Benjamin and Davone Bess are best utilized in complementary roles. Having Gordon back on the field should be a big boost against the Vikings on Sunday — for whichever QB is throwing the passes.

At the heart of the Trent Richardson trade yesterday is pure emotional outrage. The Cleveland Browns should have been an eight-win team this year according to yours truly. As most of you know, my mantra has been that for this team, considering the development time on the roster and the amount of cap space available to them, eight wins is the reasonable expectation I put on this front...

“I don’t really see it as that. We’ll see how things are going, how Brandon is doing from a health...
With the Browns trading Trent Richardson today to the Colts for a 2014 #1 pick, it says a great deal about what they thought of him. The team, under the previous regime, spent the #3 overall pick last season on him, and they just dumped him for a pick that will likely be in the late teens or the 20's. While Richardson battled injuries and ran behind a bad offensive line, he...

10) Jim Brown never liked him, just like every other running back in the team's history9) New GM and coach felt betrayed after spending a first round pick on him in their fantasy draft8) Getting a first round pick from a likely playoff team is totally worth the #3 pick in the 2011 draft7) Know now, like everyone else who watches the NFL, that they can...
What else should we expect from the Cleveland Browns? We all knew that they weren’t going to be good this year with the 40 year old sophomore quarterback, but if they could have finished out the season with a bad record and drafted a good quarterback, they would have been contenders in the AFC North in a couple years. But the Browns front office had vastly different things...
You ever started to date a woman and immediately regretted it, but because you put in the time, money and effort into the relationship you felt the need to stick around longer than you should have?
